Psychotherapy is a specialist talking treatment which helps people to explore their lives in order to understand and work through emotional and psychological problems. It challenges habitual defences and ways of thinking and is therefore a demanding rather than only supportive treatment.
Types of therapy provided:-
-Individual Brief and Medium term Psychotherapy

Group Psychotherapy consists of weekly sessions lasting 1 ½ hours. It is a long-term therapy with the average being 2-3 years or longer.
Referrals to the service are accepted from the full range of NHS, Social Work and related professionals. These include Psychiatry, Community Mental Health Teams, Social Services and Primary Care.
Usually people will have had some brief intervention, either in primary care or CMHTs, before being referred to more specialist psychotherapy.
